No more dinners like a pauper - say yes to carbs at night.
?Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper? ? is a popular quote we have all grown up hearing and associate it with healthy eating habits. It makes sense to consume majority calories in daytime since we have more time to burn them off. But turns out, we are wrong. One of the reasons to consume calories at night is our natural instinct. In prehistoric times, man spent days hunting and consumed calories in the night to refuel and store energy required for the next day. According to a recent study, eating more carbs for dinner helps to reduce weight and also triggers serotonin release that induces a relaxed and peaceful sleep. For a healthy lifestyle, we need to satisfy these natural food instincts while making sure we don?t overeat.
